“Order” of King Ruprecht to the City of Nuremberg [Wittelsbach Dynasty; Present-day Germany]: “We, Ruprecht, Roman Emperor by the grace of God, […] command with this official letter to all who see or hear of this, […] 3) Thus should each Jew or Jewess who has come of age, and who lives in the city of Nuremberg or moves into the city, pay a gold coin (‘Gulden’) into our Royal chambers once a year […]. 5) And Jews who want to move out of the city and want to sell their inheritance or property are only to do so to the citizens of Nuremberg and to no one else. […]”
